The 2020 Candidate Filing Week is May 11th - May 15th. Online filing will begin at 9 a.m. on May 11th and will be available until 4 p.m. on May 15th. In-person filings may be made at the Lewis County Auditor's Office from 8 a.m. on May 11th until 4:30 p.m. on May 15th. In-person options will be available but determined based on the Governor’s Stay-at-home order and whether the historic courthouse is open to the public. Online filing is the preferred option. Please call for more information.
Candidates may also file by mail beginning April 27th. Mailed declarations must be received by May 15th at 4:30 p.m.
The online filing tool will give you step-by-step instructions, email you a confirmation of your filing, alert you when other candidates file in your race, and provide a link to submit your voters’ pamphlet statement and photo. You will also receive a separate email from the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) for your public disclosure filing.
Per RCW 29A.36.131 the order in which a candidate's name appears on the ballot is determined by lot draw, not by the order of candidate filing.
